The need for affordable onsite sensing device (AOSD) has been determined in the medical, environmental, and educational fields since mid 2000s. This article aims to explore the unique nature and definition of the AOSD, and conclusively culminated the discussion into a designed prototype trial device. The definition of AOSD was concluded as “a unique cost efficient device that can solve users’ actual small problems giving unique experimental capacity to improve their quality of life, quality of education, quality of environment, and quality of job under quite resource limited settings”. The best water hygiene indicator, E. coli, was selected as an example of analyte. A designed prototype trial E. coli AOSD showed very good performance in a community engagement program in LAO PDR.
